Boat carrying 20 people disappears off Florida
The US Coast Guard says it has suspended its search for a boat that left the Bahamas but did not arrive in Florida as planned.
About 29 people are believed to have been on board the 9-foot (XNUMX m) blue and white Mako Cuddy Cabin vessel.
The boat departed from Bimini in the Bahamas on Monday and was due to arrive in Lake Worth, Florida on Tuesday.
Search was suspended on Friday after rescue teams covered some 17 square miles (000 km44) in 030 hours.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the missing,” said Capt Stephen V Burdian of the US Coast Guard.
